Bring a little joy to your day and make your very own mini-macramé plant hanger to hang in your house or office! This workshop will teach you the basic techniques used in macramé, a type of fiber art in which rope is knotted in decorative patterns for functional uses, using a locally made and organic cotton lanyard yarn from Echoview Fiber Mill. Craft kits include all the materials you'll need: a planter, a succulent, and a washer for easy hanging. Learning these basic macramé knots will allow you to scale up your project in the future using rope to create plant hangers for your home or to give as gifts! Craft kits are just $12 each and include all the materials needed to complete one craft AND a voucher for a fully loaded hotdog (or tempe-dog) from Foothills Local Meats hotdog cart. No pre-registration required. $5 admission (12 & up) without the purchase of a craft kit (includes one hotdog voucher). Free admission for children under 12. Collaborative community projects will be on-site, free and suitable for all ages! Craft City Workshops are sponsored in part by Buchi Kombucha and Asheville Made. The Center for Craft is supported in part by a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

Organic Growers School’s new series of Homestead Tours showcases how home-growers in Western North Carolina (WNC) are transforming their land into thriving, productive, and resilient ecosystems. Our goal is to inspire you to embark on your own homesteading journey by providing an opportunity to tour a working homestead. Tours occur once per month, each time at a different homestead, and they are always followed by an optional group potluck! Mark Dempsey is the Farm Services Coordinator with the Carolina Farm Stewardship Alliance, as well as an avid grain grower, equipment builder, and research enthusiast. On his property in Swannanoa, Mark experiments with a variety of cover crop grains using no-till farming systems and modest equipment. Mark will explain the ins and outs of growing grain crops and demonstrate techniques for processing grains for eating and storing.

Please make plans to bring one or one hundred to this free, family friendly walk. The event will feature live music from the Knotty G's, food trucks (Doc Browns and The Hop), kid's activities, and aging resources. Each year, an estimated 5 million older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. In addition, elders throughout the United States lose an estimated $2.6 billion or more annually due to elder financial abuse and exploitation, funds that could have been used to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, and medical care. Unfortunately, no one is immune to abuse, neglect, and exploitation. It occurs in every demographic, and can happen to anyone—a family member, a neighbor, even you. Yet it is estimated that only about one in five of those crimes are ever discovered. In Buncombe County you can make a Protective Service referral or report by calling (828) 250-5800 anytime, day or night. No appointment is needed.

Every third Saturday of the month during May through October, the resident artists at Grovewood Village will open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am - 4pm on all dates. Grovewood Village is home to 10 resident artists, whose studios are located directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. These workspaces were originally built to house the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, Grovewood’s resident artists - inspired by an earlier craft force - create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where the famed Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once made.
